Thousands of companies all over the world have begun to ramp up their own commitment to Virtual Internships during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, as firms begin to seek the brightest young talent across the globe to fill roles remotely. It is no surprise that the numbers of traditional internships has fallen significantly since 2019, with more than 80% of all internships offered either cancelled or delayed until 2021 or 2022.
However, as the old saying goes — “great opportunties don’t come everyday — recognise and seize them with every chance that you have” — employers are now offering thousands of Remote Internship roles beginning from the summer of 2021.
Of course, taking a remote internship position is unlikely to give young professionals the same experience as would be expected in the office, with many current interns describing their day-to-day work as culminating with “Zoom fatigue” or “lack of work life balance”; but there are dozens of reasons why Remote Internships are an excellent opportunity for potential employees.
- Exposure to multinational teams from the comfort of your own home — typically, an office environment is a siloed domain, however with the world of work adapting to Remote Work, today’s new internships provide excellent opportunity to work with team members from other countries.
- Internships are low risk for employers. For companies, bringing in young, new internships who are familiar with and have grown up around video technology already, this is an excellent way to encourage Internships and existing, more experienced staff to build knowledge-sharing relationships.
- Affordable for everyone — internships are not always paid positions — but Remote Work means that staff can affordably work from their own home, not burdened with the expense of a train commute or drive to the office.
These are just some of the reasons why you might want to consider a Remote Internship. If you are tempted, we have built Careersaas as one of the largest databases for Remote Internships on the internet, come and check us out.
